December Preview

December is a powerhouse of great movies. Here’s your guide to what new movies are coming out next month.

December 5th

Juno Movie PosterJuno – Written by a former stripper and starring Superbad‘s Michael Cera, this flick is sure to be a hit. Ellen Page from Hard Candy stars as a pregnant teen who’s giving her baby up for adoption by Jennifer Garner and Jason Bateman.

December 7th

Atonement – It’s an adaptation of an Ian McEwan novel starring Keira Knightley and James McAvoy. With stars this beautiful how could you not check out this movie?

The Golden Compass – The Catholic League is up in arms about this one because they say it’s an attack on religion. I’m not sure a movie with a talking polar bear can qualify as an attack on anything. Anyway, this movie is based on a book and stars James Bond – I mean, Daniel Craig – and Nicole Kidman.

Grace Is Gone – John Cusack plays a man whose wife dies fighting in the Iraq war. He takes his two daughters on a roadtrip while trying to figure out how to be a father without his wife. As we all know, the MovieSnobs love John Cusack, so this is a long-awaited movie. Especially after seeing him play a father in Martian Child.Grace is Gone Poster

December 14th

Alvin and the Chipmunks – As much as I despise remakes, the trailer made me giggle, and I love Jason Lee, so I’m going to give this one a chance. It’ll most likely be lame, but ya never know…

I Am Legend – Will Smith in a post-apocalyptic movie? I’m sold.

The Kite Runner – Based on a book, it’s the story of two Middle Eastern boys and their lifelong friendship. No offense, but bor-ing.

December 21st

National Treasure: Book of Secrets – Yay! National Treasure is back! More of Nic Cage’s lame quest for something to do with presidential stuff, Diane Kruger looking hot, and Justin Bartha cracking jokes. There will be action, explosions, and vague historical semi-facts. I will be in the theater.

Sweeney Todd – The Demon Barber of Fleet Street – Ah, Johnny Depp. Mr. Depp steps into the role of a damaged man who kills people and then lets the lady downstairs (Helena Bonham Carter) make them into meat pies. Plus, it’s a musical. Johnny sings.Sweeney Todd movie poster

Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story – What appears to be a parody of Walk the Line is sure to draw an audience since it’s from Judd Apatow. I might have to see it – Jenna Fischer’s in it playing the Reese Witherspoon role.

P.S. I Love You – Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler star in this rehashed rom-com.

December 25th

Alien Vs. Predator: Requiem – I know nothing about either of these series. But I’m all for giant monsters attacking each other.

Charlie Wilson’s War – An all-star cast in a movie about war. Not interested.

The Bucket List – Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman make a list of the things they want to do before they die. Sounds like a road trip movie for old people. But it stars two of the greatest actors of all time.

December 28th

Cassandra’s Dream – A super-weird trailer is all I know about this Woody Allen flick. But it stars Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell. They can read the phone book and I’d buy a ticket.

That’s about all there is. Almost more exciting than all of these great movies being released this month is that Superbad is coming out on DVD on December 4th.

What will you be checking out this holiday season?

    I myself have two trains of thought..

    #1- The third Pirates comes out on DVD, so I will be at the store buying that the very day it comes out! I can finally see the “ending ending”, since I was one of the few that didn’t sit through the credits.

    #2: Alien vs. Predator absoutely sucked, so I have no desire whatsoever to see this movie. Don’t waste your time!!!
